Frustrated Grump

Have just been reminded of a few obstacles to relearning painting... :(

1.  Don't have painting space - consigned to the floor which leads onto
2.  Cat takes unhealthy interest in whatever I'm doing - wants to get up on my lap, trys to climb on painting board, rubs herself along said board while I'm trying to put a wash on, drinks dirty painting water
3.  Hard not to overwork an area when frustrated ... must let paper dry between coats

Grumble, grumble, groan, groannnnn ... must get on so I don't waste hours of natural light ... time and patience, this isn't a speed competition.

Will post photo of work in progress at the end of the day


  1. LOL have to laugh about the cat, mine gets on my tray and licks the beads up! I don't know where they go, I haven't seen any on the other end. ;-P

  2. Hi Mandy, glad to hear someone else has a cat as daft as mine. Bracken just attacks the threading needle when I'm doing beadwork, not the actual beads. Has come very close several times to being first cat in the world with nose piercing though :)

  3. Oh, those cats! Mine wants to join your club. He gets in the middle of my projects and has come close to mouth piercing with my needles. Likes to grab buttons and fabric scraps, too, though not so dangerous as the former.
    Keep up the good work, Juls. It will get less frustrating.

  4. Hey Janda thank you so much for following my blog, hehe we could have the first set of Punk Rock cats.
    But I'm not even going to start talking about what happens to balls of wool when I'm knitting :? Think you can guess
